So it looks like attending will be:

  • Michael
  • BodÝ
  • Supafrog
  • Marcus (in pencil)
  • West Aussie Glen - confirmed
  • JD & Chippy
  • Stroppy
  • Nigel
  • Growly
  • Phil & Kate
  • Peter
  • Fossil - Lindsay
  • Shillas

Woo Hoo!  15 so far, we're half-way there (to the dinner booking at the Shamrock).

In the meantime, there's Mansfield 2024, so it would be good if some of you went to this page and registered some interest in the Mansfield 2024 (except those that can't).

Have booked accommodation (for Nigel and me) at the Shamrock via the telephone, guy I spoke with didn't instil much confidence.  I asked for an email address (as previous emails had bounced back), he didn't know the email address.  I said write mine down (which he said he did), send me an email and I'll respond.  All this was a month ago, I've had no response.

So I've now booked accommodation via Booking.com (I usually like to book direct) and have received a booking confirmation.  FYI, for anyone one who has booked at the Shamrock.

When on the Booking.com website, they had plenty of rooms at the Shamrock.

Anyway, attending we have:
  • Michael
  • BodÝ
  • Supafrog
  • Marcus (in pencil) aye, Marcus, has Tanya approved your leave yet?
  • West Aussie Glen
  • JD & Chippy
  • Stroppy
  • Nigel
  • Growly
  • Phil & Kate
  • Peter
  • Fossil - Lindsay
  • Shillas
  • ppopeye and Chris - Gary, you booked yet?

Woo Hoo!  17 so far, we're half-way there (to the dinner booking at the Shamrock). Mmmm ..... I better check the dinner booking, aye!

I havent booked yet. Was planning to bring the caravan but if the planets align I might have a pillion and ride.
I guess I might have to bool a cabin and decide on mode of transport at the last minute.

Due to on-going issues (getting responses to emails re. accommodation and dinner bookings, as well as someone coherent to talk to on the telephone), and due to pressure from VIC members for a change, please note the following revised RTE arrangements:

RTE
Saturday 11 May 2024
Balranald District Ex-Services Memorial Club


Where: 116 Market St, Balranald

Website:
https://www.balranaldclub.com.au/

Phone: 03 5020 1253 (Bistro number)

Bistro menu is in pics on the Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100095628935991

Meet: 4:00pm on sooner.

Sit down:  6:30pm

Dinner:  From 7:00pm

Contacts are:  Growly & Williamson

This will be an overnighter for most.  Book you own accommodation.

Yes, I think you mentioned that on Saturday, and had some impact on the change.

Why the Shamrock?  They have Guiness on tap.

No they don't.  Well they didn't in 2019.  They didn't even have it in cans.

p.s.
I am aware the venue has changed.

Moot point now that we have a dinner booking at the Ex-Services Club.

What, their communication and customer service has always been poor?

Not that I'm aware of.  Nigel and I are staying at the Royal Mail Hotel Wycheproof (trying to keep the Royal Tour intact), on the Friday, on the way there.
